Chronologically (in the real world, not the blog world), before I overhauled our closet, I cleaned the kitchen. I mean, I really cleaned the kitchen – disassembling the stove, buying replacement light bulbs for the microwave, and rebuilding the stove kind of cleaning the kitchen. It certainly needed it, but I really did it because of someone else’s blog about their kitchen. Huh? Yes.
Down the mental rabbit hole………
“Hmmm, her kitchen is lovely, REALLY lovely. Reminds me a bit of our kitchen. She wouldn’t know that, of course. We’re blog buddies, not “can you watch the boys while I duck out to the dentist (or liquor store)?” neighbor-type buddies. So, I can TELL her my kitchen looks a lot like hers….but she might not believe me. Or, she might think I’m a stalker who’s about to run out for some tile samples to MAKE our kitchen look like hers. Oh my gawd — I totally HAVE that plate. I knew I liked her. She shops at Target as much as I do! I know! I’ll send her some pictures of our kitchen. That’s weird, isn’t it? Who emails pictures of their kitchen to people? Anthony Weiner? Probably. No. I’ll BLOG about it. She blogged about HER kitchen, and I thought it was perfectly normal. Yes! I’ve been cooking a lot lately and sharing recipes on the blog, so I’ll post some pics of my kitchen. Nooooooo!!! Every picture I’ve taken has either highlighted the cobwebs in the light fixtures, or the nasty film of ick all across the counter tops. What IS that in the toaster? Gawd, the kitchen is filthy. Really a mess. Must CLEAN the kitchen before any suitable pictures can be taken……”
Without further delay….my kitchen (which looks a lot like WifeMotherEventPlanner’s kitchen. At least I think it does. Thank you, WMEP, for motivating me to clean the kitchen!)
Tour’s over……thanks for joining me!
